Joe and Allyn settled nicely into a quiet life together. They both went to work every day, working their way up their prospective career ladders. They still didn't have walls around most of their house, and winter arrived. Allyn loved the snow, and stopped to make a snowman as soon as she got home from work.
She must have really enjoyed making that snowman, because the very next night she made another. She didn't even bother to go up onto their bare foundation and see who Joe was chatting with. Joe had the day off and was just talking with a girl that had walked by earlier that day. She was just a teenager but she was pretty nice and they became friends quickly.
It turned out that Allyn wasn't the only one who loves snowmen. This cute little penguin came by and started trying to chat with one of them.
Allyn thought he was so cute, she had to go out and try to pet the little guy.
Their careers were going well, each of them having earned a couple of promotions, and they finally had enough money to hire a contractor to build some walls around the rest of their foundation. Joe was thrilled to come home one day and see a roof over the living room.
One of Joe's coworkers came home with home that afternoon, and offered him a new job in the military. Joe knew though that he was already in his dream career track and it wouldn't take long to work his way to the top, and declined the very generous offer.
Through the winter, Allyn had missed springtime, and flowers, even though she loved the snow, and as soon as she had enough money saved up, she bought herself a flower bench to learn how to arrange the new buds of spring. She really enjoyed working with those flowers, and was happy to be able to sell some of her creations for a little bit of profit. (Allyn's OTH: Nature)
They continued getting to know each other, and enjoyed spending time together, doing just the every day things that couples do. They hadn't made any commitments to each other yet though.
Both of them enjoyed searching for stars and constellations, and each of them earned simoleans for finding previously undiscovered stars and planets.
With spring came another past-time for Allyn. Butterflies! She loved trying to catch them in a jar to look at, but never had much success. Just being out in nature like that made her so happy. She was determined to take up hiking before long.
One day after work, Joe and Allyn were home doing their usual day-to-day stuff when suddenly, Joe called Allyn over and dropped to one knee.
Joe and Allyn started making plans, but other than that, things continued on as usual. They haven't set a date yet, but they seem happy together. Time will tell if things continue to go so easily for the pair.
(Allyn is family, and they are in love 100/100, but for some reason, she rarely spins up wants for Joe. She spins up wants to Ask on a date..., Kiss... Flirt... but it's always a faceless sim, not Joe. Is that weird?)
